Colombina Guava Doughnuts Recipe:

Get ready to whip up a batch of these mouthwatering Guava Paste-filled Brioche Doughnuts! Here's what you'll need:


Guava Paste-filled Brioche Doughnuts on a white plate with a drizzle of dulce de leche, perfect for Valentine's Day desserts or Any Occasion



  • 10.5 g (2½ teaspoons) active dry yeast
  • 30 ml warm water
  • 2 g (1/2 teaspoon) white sugar
  • 455 g bread flour
  • 240 ml warm whole milk
  • 56 g unsalted butter at room temperature
  • 3 egg yolks (50 g)
  • 30 g granulated sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • Vegetable oil or canola oil (for frying)
  • 1 cup granulated sugar (for coating)
  • Colombina's Dulce de Guayaba (approximately 40 g per doughnut, for filling)




  1. Let's kick things off by activating the yeast! Mix warm water, sugar, and active dry yeast in a glass. Let it sit for a few minutes until it's frothy and ready to work its magic.
  1. Now, it's time to work some dough magic! In a mixing bowl, combine flour, warm milk, butter, egg yolks, sugar, salt, and your activated yeast mixture. Mix until everything comes together in a glorious doughy mess.
  1. Roll up your sleeves and get kneading! Work that dough until it's smooth, elastic, and ready to rise to the occasion. Then, let it do its thing in a warm spot until it doubles in size.
  1. Roll out the dough and cut it into circles like you're creating edible magic portals. Place a dollop of Colombina's Dulce de Guayaba in the center of each circle, then fold the dough over to encase the gooey goodness inside.
  1. Let your doughnut babies rise again until they're puffy and oh-so-fluffy. Then, it's fry time! Pop those beauties into hot oil and watch them transform into golden nuggets of deliciousness.
  1. Once your doughnuts are golden brown and crispy, give them a dunk in some granulated sugar while they're still warm. Because why settle for ordinary when you can have sugar-coated perfection?
  1. Now, the best part—dig in and enjoy! Whether you're treating yourself to a solo doughnut extravaganza or sharing the love with friends and family, these Guava Paste-filled Brioche Doughnuts are sure to steal the show.
